I went through 1000's of photos on Tinder and found ZERO matches after 5 months (local US, not Russian or Ukrainian). On Mamba, I get over 20 "This Girl Liked Your Photo" messages per day, dozens of winks, some women message me with "Marry Me!" (jokingly of course).

my personal with American dating sites is that they're essentially a way for strippers, hookers and web cam girls to attempt to get your email and then bombard you with ads for adult sites and spam. 

there are of course the lovely "big beautiful women" hoping for some lucky man to wine and dine them. oh joy.
